The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Atypical is a coming of age story from the point-of-view of Sam, an 18-year-old on the autistic spectrum searching for love and independence. While Sam is on his funny and emotional journey of self-discovery, the rest of his family must grapple with change in their own lives while exploring the question: what does it really mean to be “normal”?
The second season is set to expand on the first season’s eight episodes as the reports states that the second season will consist of ten episodes. The first season has been met with mostly favourable reviews critically since it was released in the middle of August.
Atypical stars Ker Gilchrist, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Rapaport, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nik Dodani, Raúl Castillo and Rachel Redleaf.
